    No, I think your idea that there are only "a handful" of movies against commies is dumb as hell. That's all.

    That's just laughable on its face.

    Rocky IV
    What's the movie with owen wilson where he crashes his plane in Russian territory? That one.
    Top Gun (migs were commie)
    Die Hard (the last one was in Russia but all of them contained Eastern European guys for the most part)
    (God I want to look up evil commie movies but i promised I'd do it off memory)
    From Russia with Love (and I'm sure a few other Bonds as well)
    Oh, there's all of the Jack Ryan styles books, let me see if I can rattle some off:
    I can't but there's the one with Ben Affleck where he boards the sub and there is about to be a nuclear war with Russia
    Ohhhhh, and the big one, Air Force One. A good one for Harrison Ford

    Someone else hop on and think of some movies off of the top of their head to shut US Conservative up about there not being enough commie hating movies.

    *Edit: And don't talk **** to me. You still haven't backed up your dumb "fascism is more liberal" statement that you know is stupid as hell.

    *Edit 2: I didn't include them, but pretty much any movie that includes the Vietnam War could count technically. So that gives me Forrest Gump, Platoon, etc
    Red Dawn, WarGames.

    Actually, a rendition of Cartman at Best Buy would be more appropriate.

    Wasn't there a movie where the skate maker in "Mighty Ducks" played a bad commie guy?

    What's laughable is the no. of Americans gullible enough to think that major media conglomerates give a rat's ass about the safety of ordinary people.

    It's important to recognize that there is zero conclusive evidence that NK was behind the hack.

    Anyone could be a suspect. Allegations made by corporations (i. e. for PR purposes) are not credible statements, and even otherwise, there's no way sony could know the identity of the hackers.

    Movies against "commies" are enough to give right wing viewers major ejaculations, and that makes the studios and media conglomerates million$s.

    Thinking of this, I' breaking from the pack of what others are posting.

    I'm not that quick to rush to Sony's side. Sony is a Japanese company. For centuries, Korea was "the dagger pointed at the heart of China" for which the attrocities by the Japan against Koreans is across history. The relationship between the two countries had been hatred from MANY centuries.

    A Japanese company making a comedy about killing the leader of Korea was tacky and entirely predictable to not be well received by N. Korea. I suspect this MAY have been a brilliant PR idea plus lots of giggles by Sony. Now it is every American's duty to go watch the Japanese movie making a joke of assassinating the leader of N. Korea.

    I figure Sony made this happen - either deliberately or stupidly - for fun and to make a buck.

    It'd be a bit like an American company making a comedy film about assassinating the President of Mexico. Probably would have some opposition from Mexico.
